Well, of course, nurture. But if you were raised to be frugal, can you ever not be frugal?  Doesn't frugality feel genetic?   If you have been fortunate in life to move from poverty to working poor or working poor to lower middle class or even middle middle class (the only socio-economic… MORE

About this Cook
I've been retired for about a year and LOVE retirement so far! I have three children: two boys and a girl, all grown. Five grands, all grandsons, ages almost eighteen to just turned nine.
My favorite things to cook
I cook for one or two most of the time and like to prepare multiple servings and either eat 'em up over a couple of days, or use a foodsaver to freeze the leftovers. We try to watch the sodium and cholesterol so we eat a lot of vegetables and very few pre-packaged foods. As a general rule, we try to avoid purchasing anything with ingredients we can't pronounce or very l-o-n-g ingredient lists.

Classic Savory Deviled Eggs
Excellent classic deviled egg. Classic to me, anyway =) ... I don't care for Dijon, so used regular spicy brown mustard. I might add a bit more vinegar next time, but will definitely save and use this recipe. Too often, my deviled eggs taste different every time I make them. Sometimes a good thing...sometimes not!

Thai Chicken Cabbage Soup
Very good. I used the same ingredients but altered the methods. Sauteed (well-seasoned) boneless, skinless, chicken breast instead of boiling. Personal preference, just don't care for boiled chicken, plus, I wanted to cook some extra chicken for future meals. Then I sauteed the leeks and carrots in the same pan, added the broth, brought to a boil, and then added the noodles and cabbage. I used cole slaw mix for the hard to figure out how much to use, tho. I really liked this soup...will become a regular for me!

Israeli Tomato and Cucumber Salad
Good salad. I'm not familiar with Israeli salad, but a ratio of one English cucumber to one Roma tomato would, I think, be a cucumber salad =) ... I scaled the recipe to two servings and used nearly equal amounts of English cuke and halved grape tomatoes (all I had). Nice light summertime salad.
